The ad photos with the little Earth paradises are taken on these islands. The nature here is divine and the number of tourists — limited. It is a long way from Europe, and the local government protects the exclusivity of the place.
The Seychelles give the opportunity to have a rest like in no other resort. Many of the sights are unique. The Seychelles are the most ancient oceanic islands and the only ones with the granite origin. Near their coasts, the largest coral atoll on Earth grows.
